Although we do not expect the public to be targeted, in an abundance of caution, we would like to alert you to the fact that the BCA was targeted by email scammers.

Scammers read our website and used information from there to impersonate our president. They emailed other board members requesting money be wired out of the country. No money was transferred and the authorities have been notified. The BCA does not currently use ANY electronic means of payment (although it’s possible we will arrange online payment of membership dues in the future; you will see information about this on our website or through links to our website, never as a direct link from an email). If you receive a message appearing to originate from an email address requesting money or asking about suspicious detail like previous association invoices, please contact the website administrator.
